About Death Grips
The experimental hip-hop group Death Grips create brash, riotous, industrial-infused music that shatters listener expectations and industry norms.
• The trio formed in Sacramento in 2010. Drummer and producer Zach Hill had previously played drums in the math-rock band Hella.
• Death Grips released their boisterous debut album, The Money Store, in 2012. They were dropped by Epic Records later that year for issuing the follow-up, No Love Deep Web, without the label’s consent.
• After briefly disbanding in 2014, right before they were set to tour with Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden, the group reunited to unleash the double album The Powers That B in 2015. The LP cracked the Top 10 of Billboard’s Alternative Albums chart.
• Rumors suggest the group’s sixth album, 2018’s Year of the Snitch, is named for Linda Kasabian, a key witness in the State of California’s case against Charles Manson.
• Death Grips’ abrasive 2012 track “I’ve Seen Footage” can be heard multiple times during Olivia Wilde’s 2019 film Booksmart.
